to sit and talk to you about the details, no i'm not. >> laura: the obama administration is at it again. changing its story over what it knew about security lapses in libya. we will hear from a congressman investigating what went wrong. >> now, i believe that life begins at conception. the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion. >> i accept my church's position on abortion. i just refuse to impose that on others. >> laura: at last night's debate push the democrats war on women claim back to the forefront of the campaign? we will hear from both sides. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. hi, everyone, i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the truth about the debate. that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. joe biden showed up last night in kentucky with twin goals, one, to blunt mitt romney's post debate momentum and two to give a boost to a democratic base that had become quite anxious after the president's terrible denver debate performance. i will give biden this much. l
a gaffe omatic to being a laugh omatic. >> the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own now we have them in place because of congress, they say the military option is on the table but not being viewed as credible so they stopped viewing nuclear weapons. >> how do you do it so quickly? you both saw benjamin netanyahu. >> we can debate the time line. whether it's that short of time or longer. i agree it's probably longer. number two, thank heavens we had these sanctions in place. it's in spite of their opposition. >> oh, god. >> laura: this was odd. even learnt guys -- elevate left of center. found the constant smirking, smiling and constant interrupting off-putting. in your face debate strategy didn't wear so well and perhaps distracted from some of the stronger substantive points. speaking of substance, joe biden told a number of big whoppers last night but i'm going to stick to three of them. first, on why there wasn't adequate security in place on 9/11 in benghazi. >> we weren't told they wanted more security there we did not know
on september 11. many believe the obama administration initially covered up what was a terrorist attack by saying the violence might have been generated by an anti-muslim tape. we now know ambassador stevens, foreign service officer sean smith, former navy seal and two others were killed in a planned terrorist attack. the situation has the potential, potential to damage president obama's reelection chances. let's take it step by step in a methodical way. on september 12, president obama reacted to the murder of ambassador stevens by first discussing the anti-muslim tape. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. >> bill: the next day, secretary of state hillary clinton made a public statement again emphasizing the tape. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. >> bill: notice no mention of the possibility
. bill: has the obama administration taken a position on this. stkphapb. >> president obam on this dan? >> president obama has never been in favor of marijuana usage or recreational use. but the white house and the justice department have been silent on these ballot initiatives. eric holder was sent a letter urging him to speak out. he has not. we've been trying for a weak to get a comment and we are still waiting. >> it is shocking that attorney general holder, that the director, but most of all that k about this. of the united look, it's about health, it's about safety, it's about the future of our country. >> a big question, if it passes in one or two of these states is will the fed step in and enforce federal drug laws because of course bill it will still be illegal according to the federal government even if it's legal in a couple of these dates. bill: thank you. dan springer is on that story in the state of washington, seattle. patti ann: governor romney's speech on foreign policy is under an hour away. it comes on the heels of a big week for the g.o.p. what do they hope to accom
't think they were responsible, but the careerist on the one hand and the obama administration on the other. you know, you have backlit with secretary clinton. she is on record several times as saying the violence was caused by the video, famously, ambassador rice said that the white house spokesman said it. but if there is consistency, it appears to be in the rear side of the state department, saying from the get-go that it was a terrorist attack. that will be an interesting centerpiece to this hearing today. is this a real bureaucracy versus the white house? jenna: let's talk about the procedure. you were an ambassador, he worked for the state department, you were a member of the president's cabinet -- just the same as ambassador rice at this time. as information breaks and comes in, is there any chance that different people get different information and perhaps that happened here? >> yes, well, i was not a member of the president's cabinet. this may be part of the problem. all you have to cabinet officials in the state department. that is a prescription for potential trouble. but obvious
by the obamas administration. i do not know if you suggest it, but you said straight out that the obama administration had manipulated it. then you change your tune a little bit. what usually happens over time is that some of these things even out. we are unlikely to see another sharp drop-off in the unemployment rate. another issue that appears to be true is that we are near a low level of people in terms of those participating in the work force. and it went up last month, but it is near a 30-year low. there are still aspects of the job market that are still weak. the unemployment rate is still obviously very high. he had a lot of interesting things to say, but the "wall street journal", it was a bit different from the tweet he put out. host: mr. nardone, what is the bls response to what jack welch wrote? guest: the response to the idea that somebody in the white house called us up and told us that the unemployment rate needed to be 7.8%, that is simply not true. it did not happened. if it did happen, the folks that work on these numbers, they would be the ones the sending out a tweet.
, on the anniversary of the cuban missile crisis. >> two counter-terrorism experts said the obama administration use of ground strikes may be undermining security objectives in places like yemen and pakistan. peter bird and and christopher swift discuss the move from partitive killings to signature strikes, which target groups ahead of men associated with terrorists. according to research, and grown strikes in pakistan have increased from one every 40 days during the bush administration to one every four days. this is from the center for national policy. >> good afternoon. my name is gregory aftandilian. i am a senior fellow for the middle east here at the center for national policy. on behalf of our chairman, and our president, i want to welcome all of you here today. i also want to welcome c-span for covering this event. the event is titled, "death from above." as many of you are aware, drone attacks started under the bush administration but have been accelerated under the obama administration. they seem to be the main weapon of the united states against al qaeda and its affiliates in pakistan. we
be a difference with the bush administration. now, barack obama had said that all we're doing in afghanistan is air-raiding villages and killing civilians. and such a reckless, reckless comment and untrue comment, again, hurts our cause. that's not what we're doing there. we're fighting terrorists, and we're securing democracy, and we're building schools for children there so that there is opportunity in that country, also. there will be a big difference there, and we will win in -- in afghanistan, also. >> senator, you may talk about nuclear use, if you'd like, and also about afghanistan. >> i'll talk about both. with afghanistan, facts matter, gwen. the fact is that our commanding general in afghanistan said today that a surge -- the surge principles used in iraq will not -- well, let me say this again now -- our commanding general in afghanistan said the surge principle in iraq will not work in afghanistan, not joe biden, our commanding general in afghanistan. he said we need more troops. we need government-building. we need to spend more money on the infrastructure in afghanistan. look,
.s. catholic of bishops to the obama administration rules and the affordable health care act for contraceptive coverage in such cases. parenthetically, and this is the relevant in the room, both catholics disagree with the school teaching on contraception. >> i am one of those catholics. [laughter] in this case the institution i believe still has religious freedom, but other parties are involved and they have their freedoms, too, their religious freedom, in addition these catholic institutions receive government funding for their operations. so, you have here attention of these different conflicting rights going on here. the rules proposed by the obama administration first say that the church institutions had to provide contraceptive health care insurance for their and please. not only the u.s. catholic bishops, but many other catholics and many other proponents and religious liberty oppose the obama administration and regulation they then propose a compromise that such employees would be covered for contraception but the institution wouldn't have to pay for it. they call that a brilliant solu
of the obama administration officials to condemn the attack and mourn the death of ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans but as the state department has weathered the republican-led criticism of the warning signs before the september 11th attack, clinton has been invisible. clinton will not appear the oversight hearing on the libya attack where they've said they will question the state department security preparations and the administration's account of the attack. the state department plans to the interest in their career with other officials. ahead of the hearing they provided new details about the attack or asserting that there had been no way to predict or prevent the same assault. and as we read in the "the washington times" earlier, the report that the state department according to them took away any claims that this attack was due to the protest about that video to read that is the front page of the "the washington times" this morning. they also in case you are interested include a brief chronology of the aftermath of the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya if
, in a obama/biden administration, there will be absolutely no distinction from a constitutional standpoint or a legal standpoint between a same-sex and a heterosexual couple. the fact of the matter is that under the constitution we should be granted same-sex couples should be able to have visitation rights in the hospital, joint ownership of property, life insurance policies, etc. that's only fair. it's what the constitution calls for. and so we do support, we do support making sure that committed couples in the same-sex marriage are guaranteed the same constitutional benefits as it relates to their property rights, to the rights of visitation, their rights of insurance, their rights of ownership as heterosexual couples do. >> moderator: governor, would you support expanding that beyond alaska to the rest of the nation? palin: not if it goes closer and closer towards redefining the traditional definition of marriage between one man and one woman and, unfortunately, that's sometimes where those steps lead. i also want to clarify, if there's any kind of suggestion from my answer that i would
, the obama administration and congress have provided new key investment in early learning and children's health programs, including the $500 million fo for the race toe top early learning challenge act fund, over $3 billion in new early head start and early head start and head start funding, and nearly $33 billion in new funds for the childress health insurance program, which also expanded coverage to 4 million new children. simply put, strong investments in education and health for the next generation are essential to ensuring the economic prosperity and security of america. and deeper investment, particularly and early childhood education means something their personal to me, and not just because i have about 50 little kids at my house. at least that's what it feels like. these investments are fundamental to breaking the cycle of poverty in places like when all to washington and places like my home state of west virginia. actually all over the country. where poverty has gripped families for generations. today nearly one in four children live in poverty in america. inequality is the h
in the syrian conflict than the obama administration has reflected. governor mitt romney's speech today is almost certain to raise the point whether it will raise it in a way that captures the public imagination and strikes them as sensible remains to be seen. but i would say that this survey and governor mitt romney's speech plus development on the ground may be the entering wedge for what i personally regard as an overdue public debate about what the united states ought to be doing in the syrian conflict. >> thank you so much. let me now turn to the apparent polarizations of the u.s. public opinion on foreign policy issues. perhaps not surprising for weeks out from the campaign in which the foreign policy has surprisingly begun to play a significant role in the campaign but what we see in the arab world is with the emergence of more space politics, polarization as well. a around a number of issues that relate to the relationship, the interaction between the states at transitions and the united states in the west more broadly. the result that americans seem to understand without the is

leadership of al-qaeda is gone. they have been targeted and killed by the obama administration. osama bin laden no longer is a threat to the united states and neither is moammar gadhafi. and iran is nowhere closer to getting a nuclear weapon than they were before president obama took office. and america's prestige is up all over the world. the most popular person in europe today is barack obama. so people look differently and more kindly and more as a friend and partner to the united states than they ever did under george bush and dick cheney. i think this president has made a huge contribution in lifting the united states in the eyes of the world, and we are safer today than we ever were under george bush and dick cheney. 866-55-press, what do you say. >> announcer: radio meets telejigs. the "bill press show" now on current tv. of this democracy and see your tweets up on our screen. >>now that's politically direct. >> announcer: heard around the ♪ >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> bill: you got it 26 minutes after the hour. before we get to your calls on
